Ambassador Advisors is pleased to recognize the very special centennial birthday of our client Mary Hannum. Mary was born in western Philadelphia on June 9, 1917, while our world was embroiled in the trenches of The Great War.
One hundred years later, many things have changed. Mary attended Pennsylvania Bible Institute, now Cairn University. She worked for the Insurance Company of North America as a typist. The company policy, at that time, was that a woman could only work for 3 months after she got married. Mary was married in May, but the company extended her “forced retirement” until December.
Mary has lived a life of faith. Her favorite Bible verse is Philippians 4:8: “Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable – if anything is excellent or praiseworthy – think about such things.” Mary taught Sunday School for 28 years and loves to sing in the choir, particularly her favorite hymn, “Great is Thy Faithfulness.”
To celebrate this special birthday, Mary’s family made her a quilt with their handprints and names, pictured here. Mary was married for 46 years and has 4 children, 15 grandchildren, 34 great-grandchildren, and 8 great-great-grandchildren!
Ambassador Advisors is proud to help Mary manage her finances. She’s lived a frugal life, only buying what she could pay for. The only debt that she’s ever taken on was a mortgage! We wish Mary many more birthdays, but we did want to share a joke she made about her confidence for what lies ahead: “I am not looking for the undertaker, I am looking for the uppertaker!”
